Lyrics Yesterday, When I Was Young

Seems the love I've known has always been the most destructive kind
Guess that's why now
I feel so old before my time
Yesterday when I was young the taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue
I teased at life as if it were a foolish game the way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame
The thousand dreams
I dreamed the splendid things I planned
I always built to last on weak and shifting sand
I lived by night and shunned the naked light of day
And only now I see how the years ran away
Yesterday when I was young so many happy songs were waiting to be sung
So many wild pleasures lay in store for me
And so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see
I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out
I never stopped to think what life was all about
And every conversation
I can now recall concerned itself with me and nothing else at all
Yesterday the moon was blue and every crazy day brought something new to do
I used my magic age as if it were a wand
And never saw the waste and emptiness beyond
The game of love I played with arrogance and pride and every flame I lit too quickly, quickly died
The friends I made all seemed somehow had drift away
And only I am left on stage to end the play
There are so many songs in me that won't be sung
I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue
The time has come for me to pay for yesterday when I was young
